Quote from: vbgamer45 on May 13, 2022, 01:37:28 PMWas thinking about that. Scraping each page on the mod site to get package id and version number Then store that in a db. Last, compare against that db. Would prefer an official solution or api though.

I think that would lead more people to keeping SMF updating instead of them having to check via the admin interface.

Quote from: vbgamer45 on May 26, 2022, 12:36:08 PMDo you guys get that when trying to install a package. When browsing from package server "Simple Machines Third-party Mod Site "Under Add Packages? Because I get the same error for that.Just want to confirm since then it would be an SMF bug.
